basic open chords - a,c,d,e,g - and Am, Em, Dm
they sound nice and are easy to play.

i enjoy using a 'foo fighters' esque style by taking barre chords like A and leaving the top two strings open.

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

My favorite chord. I like playing it with E major.

Oh yeah, and playing E, A2, and some of those weird "open power chords" together sounds really cool. Usually if you leave the B and e strings open you get some nice mellow sounding chords.

One I just learned is 3xx432. Very jazzy sound. You actually use your thumb to hold the low E string while the index, middle and ring hold the rest.

I suppose it would be called a F7 chord? At least that how it sounds to my ears.

Maj9 chords are awesome. Jimi used some exquisite voicing of an Emaj9 at the beginning of "Angel."
